Book Review No. 40 - Llewellyn's Little Book of Psychic Development by Melanie Barnum
Welcome back! I've been busy reading, enjoying the early summer sunshine and watching way too much TV. I'm still in medical limbo, being bounced between specialists for my stomach. So, although I'm unable to do basically anything that involves walking or standing for more than 5 minute, I'm trying to stay on the positive!
This little book was really a nice read, and I really enjoyed how Melanie Barnum approached psychic development. Her book "Llewellyn's Little Book of Psychic Development" is filled with easy to read tips on how to expand your psychic abilities. Now, as a tarot reader, I've a pretty open mind about this sort of stuff. If you don't have an inclination towards psychic abilities, well then this isn't a book for you.
Barnum uses personal stories and her wealth of knowledge about physic phenomenon to give a complete beginner the tools needed to start looking into their own psychic talents. The only thing you need for this book to work for you is an open mind and a journal, and having a willing friend to do some exercised with doesn't hurt. Barnum provides a lot of exercises to work on strengthening your abilities. There are exercises for many different types of abilities, so if you are unsure of what gifts you may have, doing some of these exercises highlight what latent abilities you should work on.
Really good book for beginners. If you are already working with psychic abilities, this book may be a little too basic for you. However, if you are trying to discover your abilities well then I recommend. Also, if you are just interested in reading about these phenomenon, I would give this book a chance. I didn't read this to delve into any of my abilities (I really don't think I have any) but it was interesting to read.
